Pronounced ‘Briz-bin’ and locals casually refer to it as Brizzie, it’s the country’s third-largest tourist destination. For a city of less than two million inhabitants, it punches well above its weight for cosmopolitan offerings: world-class art galleries, rocking live-music venues and a thriving restaurant scene with year-round outdoor dining. It is consistently a front runner in the ‘Australia’s fastest growing city’ stakes with a net gain of up to 1,000 people each week.
